Random Rambling

It is absolutely natural to outgrow things. It is part of life! We outgrow our clothes (literally and figuratively), friends and sometimes lifestyle. Sometimes the growing involves growing pains; sometimes it is just a smooth transition. All this rambling about outgrowing is because I feel like I have outgrown something that has to do with … Continue reading

The Romper

I always underestimate the romper. It use to remind me so much of children clothing, but I never consider how easy and versatile it could be. You can go casual or dressy, it is all on the accessories! Also, since you are technically wearing shorts, it is extremely comfortable no matter the occasion. I recently … Continue reading

Costa Rica: Beauty Bag

Once again my beauty samples were the perfect beauty travel companions. Like I mention before, the fact that we were going to the RAINforest went over my head.

The answer is always the same frustrating ‘nothing’!!!!! Over the years, I’ve learned to read little cues and get … Continue reading

Sweet Scape: Jungle

The beach or some chic European city, are what I usually wanderlust during the summer. I know, so incredibly cliché, right?. But this year, I am craving something a bit different. A few years ago, the hubs and I visited the island of Kauai in Hawaii. It was a different type of vacation since we … Continue reading

Frankly My Dear …

You know, one of my favorite things about getting older is stop giving a damn! Let me explain, from pre teen to even mid twenties we focus so much on how we can make people like us (or at least I did!) I spend way too much precious time trying to become someone that everyone … Continue reading
